Los Angeles, the hunt is on for free, original paintings like the one above by the one and only Scott Campbell. In fact, exactly like the one above. But you’re going to have to be quick, smart and pop culture savvy.

Figure out the location, head there, find it and it’s yours. Then, see hundreds more paintings July 11 at the Revenge of the Great Showdowns exhibition at Gallery 1988 West.

Below, read Campbell’s clues about the fifth and final painting (seen above) and see a small selection of pieces that’ll be in this week’s show. Read More »

DKNG Icon Jurassic

Every film has one. A signature prop, set, or location. Something that, in a single image, can represent the entire movie. The design team of Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman, also known as DKNG, call these images “Icons,” and they are the subject of their first ever solo show at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles opening Saturday June 14.

The show, called simply Icon, is comprised of 50 pieces featuring iconic places and things from some of your favorite movies and TV shows of all time. Things like Star Wars, Beavis and Butthead, The Shining, Back to the Future, Office Space, Groundhog Day, Arrested Development, Willy Wonka, Jurassic Park, the list goes on and on. Each piece is small – 12 inches square – and is of one thing that sums up an entire movie. And of course, each is done in DKNG’s distinctive bright, geometric yet detailed style.

Below, check out our exclusive reveal of just eight of the 50 pieces you’ll be able to see and purchase in person Saturday at Gallery 1988. Read More »
